Quilt Dots! Round 2

I am very happy to announce that Quilt Dots has created a second collection of Timna Tarr Quilt Dots - sets of 6 and 9 pins and magnets.  I just love this collection. It's very representative of my quilt life - from traditional to pretty modern - but apparently I like to to use the same colors across the board!

My newest finished piece, "Tied Together", is even represented.

Pane Reflections

Thanks to all of you who emailed me, and commented on my Facebook page about naming the quilt in the previous post. The winning title is Pane Reflections. (My husband thinks it should be titled "Pain Reflections" as this quilt seemed to be a particularly painful one to complete.) You all helped me refine my ideas into a name that makes sense for me and the quilt. The piecing is an abstraction of city windows, while the quilting is what I had been seeing while standing in the rain waiting for my daughter's school bus.

Now I'm ready to move on to the sublime and the ridiculous - the George Washington quilt.
